Now that I've posted a few times it occurred to me I should introduce myself.

I'm conservative politically. I enjoy reading and posting on the nets. I like boards with a good mix of people and a variety of topics to post about.

This place looks fun. Looking forward to it.

No, but there is a new trend in Texas, for them that don't care about cholesterol or a lengthy life span. Chicken Fried Bacon. I kid you not. No word yet on if Sodolak's has installed a defibrillator on premises.

What's soda? Baking soda?

Or do you mean Coke? Everything's a Coke in Texas. But there are many different kinds of cokes. There's your root beer Coke. Your Dr. Pepper Coke.

Nope, real ****-mothering soda
The Apex of American Ingenuity- Fried Soda

"So just how do we achieve the impossible- frying that which is not solid? We owe the ingenious solution to Abel Gonzales , a 36-year-old computer analyst from the state where everything (including the tension on elastic waistbands) is bigger- Texas. Gonzales concocted his bewitching balls of batter from a combination of Coca-Cola syrup, strawberry syrup, and the solid matrix that makes deep-fried liquid a glorious reality- a strawberry. Plunged into the fryer, the syrupy strawberries emerge in all their ping-pong-sized, spherical splendor where they are heaped into in a cup and doused in All-American accoutrements that include even more Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, and cinnamon. This, of course, is topped off with none other than the iconic maraschino cherry and voila- the perfect addition to our robust family of sugar-saturated, State fair snacks."

Like I said. Coke. Soda has a whole 'nuther meaning in Texas.

When I was in Ohio, everything was "pop."

I have yet to see a store that sells vests with sleeves yet. Not even in Texas.

Hello and welcome, friend! =)

So you're from Texas? I was told Texans are for America about the same as Bavarians are to us Germans. A bit weird, a bit conservative, but usually well-meaning. :)

Anyway, nice to meet you! :)
